This week on the Craft Business Challenge:
23 vendor booth ideas to help you design your display for craft shows. Plenty of original photos showcasing handmade clothing displays, food booths, and portable displays using pedestals. Plus, just in time for Halloween, scary blogger behavior.
As we near the busy holiday craft show season, your booth is probably mostly complete, but, if you want to add a little extra appeal, there's still time to add a last minute embellishment or two.
For those who have a few more finishing touches to add to their display, I have more than 20 pictures featuring vendor booth ideas.
You'll see several tempting food display booths, a display that cleverly tells a story and sells an idea of a lifestyle as well as selling the products, and a smart and elegant way to use packaging to enhance your display.
I hope you find plenty of inspiration in these booths and they help you get your own display ready for upcoming Christmas craft shows.
But first, the newest article I'm sharing this week looks at the etiquette of blogging to help new online business owners avoid making major blogger blunders.
Etiquette of Blogging: If you're a beginner blogger, you might wonder if there are etiquette rules for bloggers. While there's no official rule book, I can share with you a few chilling tales of bad mannered bloggers, so you can avoid irking other bloggers as you grow your own online business.
Food Display Ideas: I took a break from shopping and tasting delicious free samples long enough to collect these 9 photos of fantastic food displays.
Craft Booths Featuring Pedestals: The portable pedestal, in my opinion, is an under-rated display option. Pedestals aren't used as frequently as other types of display furniture, but they are a highly flexible alternative that allow you to arrange your booth in any number of ways.
If you're wondering how to use display pedestals in your booth, here are several photos to get your ideas flowing.
Clothing Displays for Craft Shows: If you're a clothing designer, I have plenty of inspiration for you to get ready for craft shows with 8 clothing booth photos.
Encourage your customers to splurge a bit!
I have plenty of printable craft booth signs in my Etsy shop to inspire your customers to treat themselves and support your small business.
